, they're taking part in afghanistan, they also -- like their scandinavian neighbor denmark -- did have an uproar over the cartoons. but an uproar that i should mention that the norwegian government went out of it way to apologize for. so, basically, it's normally seen as a soft target because it's a peaceful country and considered that. one more thing, rick, you know, it's interesting that the actual nobel prize for peace is given out in oslo, but today it seems very far from that. rick? rick: good observation there. greg burke streaming live for us from europe. thanks very much. jenna: back stateside, it's hot outside. at least 17 states have temperatures above 100 degrees, and more than 20 people have died this this brutal heat wave. utility companies are struggling to keep the juice on in so many places. adam shapiro is in new york city's central park with more. hi, adam. >> reporter: hey, jenna, and it is so hot out here, i'm spritzing the atlantic ocean. i'm going to tell you not only how you can save money, but how you can make money, have the utility company pay you in a heat wa
country, why? well, they've been active in afghanistan, had a deployment there for several years, active in the libyan air campaign, the cartoon issue. also, what we're finding in scandinavia is groups themselves are coming together from denmark, sweden, and norway, different ethnicities gathering and meeting in mosques, and they are adjacent -- they're local to norway, sweden, denmark. know where the targets are. and saying a man who lived in norway, head of a very radical sunni group from northern iraq who was prosecuted because he'd threatened norwegian ministers because he was going to be deported. he said, you deport me and i get killed in iraq, the same will happen to norwegian ministers. so they do have this fringe in scandinavian countries of islamist militants. >> when i have questions about terrorism here, i often come you and ask you, you know, who these people are, what's going on here. in terms of who might be behind this, who do you think? >> it could be a whole range of groups. but the point is that al qaeda is not so much an organization. it's more a spirit for these peop
in afghanistan or iraq or perhaps the publications of some of these cartoons of the profit mohammed. >> we'll stay in touch with you. thanks very much for helping us. >> thanks a lot. >> obama spoke out about the attacks in norway from the white house not that long ago and he condemned the violence. >> we want to prevent this kind of terror from occurring. we have cooperated with both intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks. >> what's going on? >> so far no official request from norway for help, but a top counterterrorism official says you should expect to see both countries, they have a very close relationship. expect to see them share everything they can on intelligence. where might the norwegians start to look for clues? it whether start right on the streets of oslo. they will look at those buildings with or without u.s. help. they will look at the destruction. was that reinforced steel? was it reinforced concrete? how wide a area? that will help them calculate the size of the bomb, the power of the bomb. and they will get into bomb forensics, if you w
plate. he's managing three wars and conflicts in iraq, afghanistan, and libbia. he, of course, has the debt ceiling on going on capitol hill, which apparently is not going on. and he comes here to the university of maryland to talk to college students and constituents. and as a result, he held a town hall meeting here to meet with his voters. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> reporter: mr. obama received a warm welcome and acknowledged that even the president is affected by the heat. >> i see some smart folks up there wore shorts. my team said i should not wear shorts. my legs are not good must enough to wear shorts. [ laughter ] >> reporter: but then as he talked about the looming financial crisis in the country. >> first thing i wake up thinking about in the morning and last thing i think about when i go to bed at night. and i won't be satisfied until every american who wants to find a job can find one and until workers are getting paychecks that are actually paying the bills. >> reporter: then came the question of jobs. strengthening neighborhoods to t
here. >> thank you. >>> up next, how can an al qaeda terrorist in afghanistan, a triple agent, if you will, manage to infiltrate the cia and kill seven operatives? we're going to talk to the author of a hit new book that takes us inside the 2009 attack. that's next, and this is "hardball" only on msnbc. >>> the u.s. government's remaining shares in the company meaning the government's $12.5 billion bailout ended up costing taxpayers $1.3 billion. >>> we'll be right back. 8gg@รบ >>> welcome back to "hardball." it's been more than two months since u.s. special forces shot and killed osama bin laden. in the wake of that success, it's easy to forget the long, hard road to get there. back in debt of 2009, the cia thought he had the ultimate double agent who would lead them to the top echelon of al qaeda but turn out to be a triple agent, buried so deeply into the cia when he detonated the bomb he was wearing he killed seven cia agents as well as himself. "washington post" national correspondent jody warrick writes an that and how the cia was duped in his new book calmed "the triple threat:
in the operations in afghanistan or iraq. there doesn't appear to be a particular reason for why that nation should be targeted. >> well, norway does have special forces operating around kabul, has had for a long time, and has declined to remove them. and inspite of, you know, multiple warnings from zawahiri and others, and if you look at the internet buzz on the gjihad websites that is why norway would be attacked, and another possibility is that there was a norwegian magazine a few years ago that republished the danish cartoons that muslims found offensive, and that was mentioned today, even though the norwegian government apologized for that publication. there was a thwarted attack last year that al qaeda central was believed to be responsible for. so it is not as if this is something that has been pristine in terms of threats. this is the country that has seen a number of threats, and i think that also having president obama make that statement publicly today indicates that the u.s. government at least believes if not confirms that this is a gee hjihadi attack an qaeda central attack. >> thank
of reasons, also troops in afghanistan, have worked with the united states on some things overseas. when we see the bomb, we don't know much about it yet, but maybe you know more from your sources. when you see the devastation, it's not a small bomb, because damage is high up, and the police say undetonated explosives were found on the island where the horrific shooting happens with the children at the labor camp. when you see that, the sophistication, the power of the bomb, what does it tell you? >> it suggests this more than the work of a single individual. remember we saw the times square bomber. one guy trying to accumulate the materials and detonate it at the time of his choosing, it's hard to do. it suggests there's more than a single individual. the other thing is there was a norwegian journalist media report suggesting that the guy, the individual they have in custody, was a farmer who might have had access to the sort of fertilizer that was anothused te the oklahoma city bomb. as we learn more facts, we'll understand better the motivation, but people now i think in the terrorism co
of nato. we have forces in international military operations. >> woodruff: afghanistan. >> libya. >> libya, and we are also doing peace facilitation which can make us a target. we have been on sri lanka. we have been in haiti, sudan, lots of places talking to people, which don't necessarily share our views on that. >> woodruff: as you look at these pictures of your home country, what comes to your mind. >> i'm saddened to see the report. you just had here. i live 10 minutes walking distance from the prime minister's office and this is a lively part of oslo and knowing that norway has been attacked by somebody, it's hard to understand, all my friends in norway are still in shock. there will be some hard days to come. and we are not sure how to deal with this at the moment. and there are so many unanswered questions. why did they do this? was he alone. is it part of an international terror organization which the police say is probably not. but how can people go to bed tonight. >> woodruff: well, that's a very good question. how can people go to bed tonight. ahnders tvegard here in washington
on our hands with afghanistan, the debt ceiling, joblessness, and all of that. we can't help but notice a school yard scuffle on the floor of congress. on one side, debbie wasserman schultz, the chairman of the democratic national committee, never met a sound bite she didn't like. and on the other side, alan west, republican from florida's second district, a tea party favorite and no stranger to controversy. they're practically neighbors, right. it started when representative schultz lobbed something over the backyard fence. take a listen. >> incredulously, the gentleman from florida, who represents thousands of medicare beneficiaries, as do i, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a member from south florida. >> well, neighbor west took huge offense at this. he fired back an e-mail to her personal e-mail, i might note, and he said, i quote, "you are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the house of representatives." wow, that tells you something, especially considering how many might qualify for that title.
roll of american service personnel killed in the iraq and afghanistan conflicts. we add them as their deaths are made official and photographs become available. here, in silence, are eight more. >> brown: and that's the "newshour" for tonight. i'm jeffrey brown. >> woodruff: and i'm judy woodruff. we'll see you online and again here tomorrow evening with mark shields and david brooks, among others. thank you and good night. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. captioning sponsored by macneil/lehrer productions captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org
to afghanistan or iraq or any soldiers or troops they have there. that's all speculation right now. we don't know if it was an intentional explosion or if it was something that was a complete accident such as a gas explosion. police are not releasing any information right now. again, whatever it was was powerful enough. interesting to note, though, i heard on one of the other reports that this is a time when many people actually take vacations in oslo, so they're away from the city center and along the coastal areas. so perhaps that was a good thing. this could have been much worse had it been at the height of rush hour or the height of the time when people are actually in the city. >> thanks so much. we'll continue to allow you to do some more reporting on that and touch base with you momentarily. a lot of images you're seeing were shot by this person i'm talking to. christian, you were rolling as you were walking around to get a handle about what happened. what was your first experience with this explosion? where were you? >> sure, sure. well, at the time of the explosion i was working at a nea
include the involvement by the norwegian military in actions in afghanistan. there are norwegian soldiers there, there is an al-qaeda official from the northern part of iraq that sought sanctuary in norway and perhaps even more disturbing is the report that just in the past year one of the main newspapers of norway which does have offices in that central area of oslo they, too, printed as other newspapers did in europe these cartoons of the prophet mohamed of the muslim faith, and as we all know, that has been a major bone of contention. this is what we're following right now, bill. bill: all right, greg, thank you. that tangled wreckage of a car might be a precious clue in all of this, and it might be the clue or not. it's not clear what threats were leveled against the government or prime minister, but we're working through all that. it is breaking news in oslo, norway, here on america's "amers newsroom." patti ann: brian terry was gunned down with a weapon the feds were supposed to be tracking, and terry's cousin gave some emotional testimony on capitol hill. now we're gearing up for r
in both afghanistan and in libya. now, martha, you know, how quickly we forget the train bombings in madrid, the bus and the metro bombings in london. but if you're living in europe, you just get the feeling today like here we go again. martha? martha: here we go again. greg, thank you very much. we'll get more on that from greg burke, also ambassador john bolton is enroute to our washington bureau. we expect to have him with us live moments from now and his take on that. that'll be about five minutes from now, so stay tuned for that. >>> in the meantime, we have got this extreme weather going on in the united states. an epic heat wave that is baking a huge portion of this country. in fact, roughly half of all americans are coping with temperatures that are in the near triple digits right now. record breaking tops reported in the kansas -- temperatures reported in kansas all the way across to new york city. and it is not just unpleasant, it is dangerous in many places. at least 22 people have died related to this heat, and can there are new warnings that that number could be risin
we've been showing you in afghanistan where they routinely have temperatures like this this time of year but take a look at basra today. 114 in the shade. and while we're wearing t-shirts and shorts, they are in full battle gear. meanwhile, let's take a look. some viewers have weighed in on how they keep cool. katie says she chills with the penguins at the newport kentucky aquarium. how do they let her in there? this is how the beck family stays cool in virginia beach, a little ice cream in the pool. and the cool thing about that is you don't have to worry about the drips. >> that looks good. all right, meanwhile, brian is outside. let's go see what he's cooking up. >> cooking. >> i don't know if you heard, alisyn, what i'm cooking up is michael frantti and spearhead is here. does that please anybody in the audience? that's it. michael, welcome to the show. you're one of these musicians wide awake at this hour in the morning. great to see you. congratulations on selling out, this last hit that you had out "the sound of sunshine" has sold, what, two million copies. >> yes. actua
